scene in Canyon County where a vehicle crashed into a backyard shed
of a residence after leading police on a high speed chase from
Meridian through Nampa, into Canyon County.Officers believe the two
people in the vehicle are connected to a bank robbery that occurred
in Boise just over an hour ago.
What Happened:Boise Police were called
to a robbery at a bank on the 1100 blk of Broadway at 2:10 p.m.
this afternoon. Detectives investigating say witnesses report a
woman walked into the bank, handed a teller a note demanding money,
then left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.
About 20 minutes later, an officer with
Meridian Police spotted a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed
westbound on Interstate 84 near Meridian Rd. The vehicle matched a
description of one possibly connected to the bank robbery, a Mazda
RX8 with Nevada license plates. The Meridian officer tried to pull
the vehicle over, however the vehicle failed to stop which
initiated a pursuit. Officers from Meridian PD, Boise PD and Idaho
State Police were involved in the pursuit of the vehicle, which
continued at speeds estimated at approx 100 mph on the interstate
into Nampa. Officers reported spotty, mild to medium traffic
conditions on the Interstate during the chase.
The suspect vehicle exited the
interstate on Karcher Rd. Nampa Police then took over the chase
which went approx eight miles down Karcher Rd into Canyon County.
The driver of the suspect vehicle then apparently lost control, hit
a fence, went down an embankment and crashed into a shed in the
backyard of a home off Karcher Rd.
Officers immediately called for
paramedics. Officers found two people trapped inside the car, a man
and woman. Both were extricated and have been transported to A
Boise hospital. The conditions or injuries of the man and woman are
unknown at this time.
